Farmer’s wife: Rainbow Flowers

Rainbow Flowers

© 2012 by Heike Scharmann

Honestly, I don’t get this block. Flowers? Okay, maybe we are talking of flower beds, in rainbow colours.

The design is a simple log cabin, with four rounds in for prints. Or at least, this was what I thought when looking at the picture. When looking at the assembly diagram, however, I discovered that Laurie has put in squares at the corner of each round—in the same print as the rest of the round. This doesn’t make sense to me.

I twisted my mind but could not get a clue. There must be a reason, I thought! But I couldn’t find any. So I decided to give it a reason. I picked seven different fabrics and thus put a little stress on the four diagonally standing squares. I am very much pleased with the result. The block doesn’t look like a log cabin anymore, but I like it even better for it.

By the bye, this is the first block I didn’t paper piece.
